I have two mature feijoa trees (6mtr H) looks like they have never been pruned and only got a bagful of fruit this year. They block a lot of sun to our house and wanting to know if I can prune back into hedge 3-4mtr and thin out?

sorry for bad image quality, but i have been tasked with removing all of these such weeds from our lawn, as come summer they dry and stick into your feet.
what would be the best way to take care of these, and to ensure they dont return next growing season?

I have been looking for an alternative to derris dust as I have tutu children and also not enough patience for continually re-applying the already nuisance derris dust. I came across a product called Dipel and was wondering if you stock it or know of anyone that might. I couldn’t find it on the mitre10 and bunnings websites.Also is there any chance of online shopping on your site?

I’m a home brewer living in Wellington and would like to purchase some rhizomes or potted hops plants to grow my own hops over summer.
Waimea Nurseries (based in Nelson) supply various hops rhizomes and I understand you are one of their customers. Can you please tell me if you have any hops plants/rhizomes in stock or whether you would be able to order some in?
Thanks and regards

The soil is clay will be trying to improve the soil before planting. What would be the best type of Hedge Camellia to plant here and how far apart will they need to be?

I bought a Cypress Bonsai tree a day ago for a gift and I forgot to ask for instructions on how to maintain it. It is a small tree with a lot of leaves, i bought it for $50 from the Glen Eden shop. How often does it need to be watered and what type of food does it need and how often? Also how often does it need to be put outside in the sun, because I wanted it mainly as an indoor plant.
